So, on Friday a coworker and I decided to go out for happy hour after work. She insisted on inviting others from the office and I vetoed the idea. I spend enough time with those people, I don't need to go out, try to have fun, and be consumed by work for more of my life than already occuring. Anyway, we decided we would go to the Front Page, a bar in Dupont Circle. While at the Front Page, three people took the table next to us and decided to have Irish Car Bomb shots, we thought they looked good and ordered a few to take with them. From there, we all co-mingled and became "friends". This was the first time I have met a group of people, rather than one person at a time. It was a great feeling. When meeting one person, I feel pressured by the whole "dating/sexual attraction" weight. The three of them turned into about 10 by the end of the night, we all drank, danced, and just had a great time. I can totally see myself hanging out with these people, they seemed pretty cool.
As the night progressed I had one guy, who reminds me of Scott from Keeping up with the Kardashians, who was trying to get me to go home with him. He tried to sell himself as the "Most Mediocre 73 seconds of Your Life" which I kind of appreciated, at least he is honest hahah. I had another guy, who when introduced to me, grabbed my hand, pulled me in, kissed my neck and said "let's get out of here babe"... can you say CREEPY. Needless to say, I didn't talk to that guy again. Sometimes guys are just drunk, sometimes they are just creeps. I would like to take this time to thank my guys friends in Boise (Blake and Tim) for showing me the clear difference between the two.
I stayed out until about 11 as I had to work in the morning, I gave my number to numerous people in the "crew" I had met. We now have plans to meet up for happy hour again next week. I am desperately itching to find good humored people to hang out with that do not currently work for KPMG. I can see myself intertwined with this group of people, I just can't fuck this one up...ummm, which might be highly unlikely as I seem to mess EVERYTHING up! Whoops!
